This specimen consists of numerous, intergrown, light brown and opaque gypsum discoids, with individual crystals reaching 3 cm across (last photo). Pale, ghostly fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. Would look nice displayed vertically, for which it needs a stand. Despite having come from an estate sale, the specimen is in pretty good condition, considering gypsum's softness and ease of cleavage. Impossible to even begin to guess at a locality; Mindat lists about six thousand possibilities.
